I was looking at some of the work of an artist whose style I’ve always really liked, and I came across this. I was so disappointed, all of his work is really, really great. I don’t know how he could do something so… wonky.

“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job
A cancer sufferer travelled thousands of miles across China to buy a two-legged goat that walks on its hind legs because he admires its strong spirit. Wang Xinmin, who suffers from lymphoma, journeyed from his hometown in Fuyang in eastern China’s Anhui Province to buy the animal for 4,500 Yuan (£450) in Zhoukou in Henan Province. The 31-year-old made the decision after reading a newspaper report about how the goat had taught itself to walk after being born with only two hind legs.
